stiffer sanctions, sanctions on the various sectors of russia's economy, the mining sector and believes that would have a bigger bite than sanctions implemented so far which largely target individuals. russia has been hesitant to move forward with stiffer sanctions because they are far more dependent on russia for things like oil than the united states is. so that is where the divide comes in. president obama has said he doesn't want to move forward without his european allies because he wants to present a united front to russia. the u.s. calculation being that that is far stronger than if the u.s. were to move forward unilaterally with those sectoral sanctions but germany is the linchpin here. so president obama will be trying to do some arm twisting. as you say, another issue that might come up the nsa, the two leaders could discuss the fact that german chancellor merkel was quite upset by the revelations that her cell phone had been happened. but the issue of ukraine will overshadow all of the other issues. >> and jean cummings, you've covered economics in the business world for so m

postured now what to put on the table and how to try to coax russia back with the on ramp that gets it back into the civil, the world of civilized nations, and merkel is resonant to look at that economy. >> well, germany gets a third of the natural gas from rush sharks and 350,000 german workers depend on russian trade, and the difficu difficulty is that what are the chances that the europeans and the german s wis will make the ongoing sectorial sanctions? >> well, the dilemma is that the white house is going to make the going after putin and the cronies and the institutions with them to affect the course of the nation that i think that is, it is in the midst of a natural greatness campaign and wanting to feel a restoration of the pride and dignify in the world, and if you want to sanction the individuals, that is not going to necessarily give you the correction of the courses, and it is sort of like if you have the u.s. trying to sanction david koch and george soro soros, and hoping that the united states would go a different direction and many people have said that unless the sanctions ar
gets a quarter of its gas from russia and half of that that was really news to me have a that passes through ukraine. we remember that in 2009 early in 2009, the pipelines were shut down to ukraine. what was the reason for that again? >> there was a price dispute between -- ukraine had not paid its debt and the russians shut down the gas supply to ukraine first and then for the rest of south eastern europe through ukraine a few days later. >> so that didn't have much of an effect on europe at the time because of the shorter rations because it had a tremendous effect, both 13 days of no gas in the dead of winter, and chip uses gas primarily for eating so the timing was not accidental. >> what did it do come increase the price? i mean, was there a scarcity going to your? >> it lasted 20 days in total, 13 days for most of europe and as a result what it did was drove home the realization of the publicly that europe has in its reliance on russian gas and its need for diversification. because it only lasted 13, the pain was a short-lived. >> does that mean that europe is less dependent on

the military out there in the east might provide a pretext for russia to cross the border with it's own troops. that said, it is a powerful statement from the kiev administration, that it is not going to allow the east simply to slip away. >> what more do we know about the violence and controlling the violence in the east? >> well, it's been -- as i say, a public holiday, that has meant that people aren't at work, in the east it has given them ample opportunity, there have been peaceful protests. which has been previous hot bed of unrest, there was a large but peaceful protest today. but that said, there have been demonstrations which have effectively taking more billings in several cities up there in the east, and the biggest was in a place called dunat. the sheer numbers and the violence that they were prepared to use, overwhelmed those riot police, they were stripped of their riot shields and they protective equipment, they were marched rather embarrassingly through a gauntlet of protestor and is demonstrators are very clearly in control of several buildings now. >> very difficult situation

a loan package for kiev, to help ukraine get back on its feet and withstand pressure from russia. i spoke to christine lagarde about all of this earlier today. >> let's talk about ukraine, the imf has taken this step of approving the $17 billion for two years of loans. 3 billion immediately distributed made available to ukraine. how will this help the kiev government? i think it will help them significantly. number one, there were clearly in need of urgent help financially, number two it will support them in their determination to reform the economy with the imf support, but also with -- we hope international support coming from other sources such as other international financial institutions and hopefully other countries as well that will rally to help and support the ukrainian authorities the economic situation. >> at the same time, there are other challenge is military and they now acknowledge they lost control of two key provinces in eastern ukraine. as long as they lose control of eastern ukraine, effective control and that is the industrial base, how can their economy ever really re

% aimed at russia. all the other participants in this program are the very countries that russia threatens right now. particularly ukraine which is the second largest participant. i think it would be a really bad signal for this country to actually cut programs that are supportive of democracy in the areas immediately around russia. frankly i think more or less plays into putin's hand. beyond that we have a unique institution, unique arrangement and unique person heading it at the library of congress, who is probably the country's -- is the country's, probably the world's foremost expert on russian history and culture and literature. this has been well placed as long as he's been the librarian and well used. again i appreciate my friend's motives, but i would urge the rejection of the amendment. with that i would like to yield the remainder of the time that i have to my good friend, the gentleman from virginia. the chair: the gentleman from virginia is recognized. >> coy not agree mr. moran: i cannot agree more with my friend from oklahoma, the chair of this subcommittee. and the idea that

-- that russia has taken kiev for sea power - natural resources of the sea. as an american, what are we lacking in terms of natural resources? guest: i don't understand the premise of the question. as far as natural resources, the united states is not lacking anything. we have the potential to almost be self-sufficient in resources. the economy is growing today primarily because of energy development on state and private lands. if we were to actually use energy resources on public lands, we could sustain that growth and not have a roller coaster of boom and bust. we have the resources in the united states. areust need to make sure we developing those resources in every form, not just carbon-based fuels. host: here are a couple of tweets -- guest: amen. and there are some perfect examples. we have an area outside of utah which was blm land that they did easter break,one and almost broke into her right down a. finally, they contracted with the county to manage that area in the county now manages it and maximize profit and is one of the premier recreation areas we have in the state of utah if not
-russian separatists now essentially control who regions close to the eastern border with russia. ukraine's acting president now says all his government can do is try to contain the violence, because in his words, police and security forces are helpless to stop it. he says there's nothing they can do at this point. senior international correspondent nick paton walsh is live in slovyansk, ukraine. nick, i've got to say, this admission from the president makes it seem like a lot of the efforts going on, both by the united states and elsewhere at this point, are just completely futile. >> reporter: it's almost bizarre to hear the acting president of the country, ahead of the presidential elections, say there's nothing they can do to stop what's happening here in eastern ukraine, and i think there are perhaps two reasons behind that. one is to put blame on the security forces here, who he also in the same statement said weren't doing their job properly, were out of his control. that's effectively saying they've chosen to switch sides, perhaps, or are unwilling to shoot against some of the local reside
power. >> zeina khodr reporting from that's correct sim square in istanbul. >> russia's military attache to ukraine has been ordered to leave the country. he's been held on suspicion of spying. ukraine's acting president says police and security forces are helpless to stop the unrest in parts of the east. >> ukraine is entering is 4-day national holiday, what we see at the cabinet office in central kiev, as predicted, armoured personnel carriers bringing snipers and special forces into the building as a drill orchestrated for the cameras, gathered around, for reassurance for the public and protection of the building itself. the acting president oleksandr turchynov warned that provocation and diversions would be raised during a 4-day holiday. security services are taking no chances. there are guards on all the doors, loded gun here, as we can see. and reality is that the warning that the acting president put out must not be allowed to spread to other areas here in kiev. they are adamant that places like odessa, and kiev, are just as much at risk as those places overrun by separatist eleme
from europe, from russia, or otherit through mechanisms. so it is very important. as far as the efficiency rates, ma'am, there, you crane is very inefficient. and the department of energy together with us is working on ukraines to work with to see what we can do to increase efficiency rates. as many haves addressed the subsidy issue where gas is so cheap that don't want to conserve, but also to put in place the kind of mechanisms and will allow for more conservation, so they can do far more with less or with same amount. that's a program that we've done in other countries, d.o.e. and department of state work together on these issues and i think we have a number much proposals that could work rewell for ukraine. >> mr. smith, can we talk about ferk and the process there is i understand is under cumbersome and takes longer how the that interrelate with process that you have ongoing? >> thank you. to get too far into the details of the ferk process, i would not be able to characterize it appropriately, but in general the ferk has an important theof managing environmental pro
